    Just read the report from theverge, Tronsmart is the latest headphone maker to announce a pair of in-ear Lightning headphones designed for the new iPhone 7, but it looks to be the first to include a DAC (digital-to-analog converter) and a Lightning audio module (LAM) for the tiny speakers.

    This lightning headphone called "Tronsmart Encore", uses a DAC and a LAM to deliver 48 kHz/24 bit digital audio (the DAC and LAM sit near the separated microphone instead of in the speaker). They also have noise-isolating ear tips and a Kevlar fiber cable to help reduce broken cords.

    Seems that it is the latest lightning headphone on the market now. Does the lightning headphone which comes with the new iphone has the built-in DAC and LAM?

    Does it support Siri, how do I change volume? What if I want to switch to the other device? Is it waterproof on any level?

    He provided the links for you... You could just click on through and read the information we all have avaialble.

    Will be interesting to see if this is all hype or if someone really does come out with an external DAC that is perceptively better than the built in....
